Are First and Second-year students required to live on campus?
Willamette University
Yes! Students are required to live on campus during their first two years at Willamette. We find that this really helps students get to know the campus, its resources, and each other well, and this ensures that students feel as supported as possible on campus. Housing is guaranteed all 4 years, so if students would like to continue living on campus after their second year, they're more than welcome to do so. Otherwise, students may choose to move off campus for their last two years.

Do student athletes receive a scholarship at Willamette University?
Willamette University
Hi Layla! Since we are a Division III school, we do not award athletic scholarships. We do, however, have a robust selection of other scholarships available, like merit awards, competitive scholarships, and need-based aid.
